TSX: GPR |  NYSE American: GPL

VANCOUVER, May 15, 2019 /CNW/ - GREAT PANTHER MINING LIMITED (TSX: GPR; NYSE American: GPL) ("Great Panther", the "Company") today reported financial results for the Company's three months ended March 31, 2019.  The full version of the Company's unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") can be viewed on the Company's website at www.greatpanther.com or on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.  All financial information is prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), except as noted in the Non-GAAP Measures section of the MD&A.  All dollar amounts are expressed in US dollars ("USD"), unless otherwise noted.

"Great Panther completed a key strategic milestone in the first quarter of 2019 by closing the acquisition of Beadell Resources and its 100% owned Tucano Mine in Brazil.  The acquisition of the Tucano Mine transforms Great Panther into a 200,000 gold equivalent ounce per year intermediate precious metals producer with diversified operations in leading Latin American jurisdictions," stated James Bannantine, President and CEO.  "The transaction, which closed on March 5th and contributed to Great Panther's results from that date, added modestly to first quarter results."

"Production and operating costs are already improving at Tucano.  With the supplemental oxygen plant commissioning completed as of the start of May, Tucano has been successfully processing higher grade sulfide ore with better than budgeted recoveries since the end of April", Mr. Bannantine added.  "GMC had a weak quarter and did not perform to plan, however, we have seen improvements in the grade of ore coming exclusively from the San Ignacio mine and associated plant recoveries since the start of the second quarter. Our operations and geology teams remain focused on optimizing San Ignacio, as well as the dedicated exploration at the Guanajuato Mine to be able to bring it back into production next year.  Topia's expansion in production and associated capacity expansion is proceeding ahead of plan."

REVIEW OF FINANCIAL RESULTS

The Company realized an average gold price of $1,294 per ounce and an average silver price of $14.79 per ounce, down 5% and 10%, respectively from Q1 2018. 

Revenue generated in the first quarter was $16.7 million, representing a decrease of $0.3 million or 2% compared to the first quarter of 2018.  This was primarily attributable to the decline in metal prices ($1.4 million effect) and higher smelting and refining charges which are netted against revenue ($0.1 million effect).  These factors were partly offset by an increase in metal sales volumes ($1.2 million effect) due to sales from the newly acquired Tucano of 5,314 gold ounces. 

Production costs for the first quarter of 2019 increased by $0.8 million compared to the first quarter of 2018.  The increase was due to the addition of the Tucano operations ($1.1 million effect).  This was partly offset by the weakening of the MXN to the USD which had the impact of decreasing production costs in USD terms ($0.3 million effect). 

Mine operating earnings before non-cash items decreased by $1.1 million relative to the first quarter of 2018 as a function of the decrease in revenue and increase in costs discussed above.

The first quarter of 2019 reflected a net loss of $9.1 million ($0.05 per share) compared to net loss of $0.1 million ($0.00 per share) in the first quarter of 2018.  The change was largely accounted for by $2.6 million in business acquisition costs related to the acquisition of Beadell Resources Ltd. ("Beadell")(the "Acquisition"),  a $3.3 million decrease in finance and other income, a $2.4 million decrease in mine operating earnings, a $0.8 million increase in G&A expenses (primarily in relation to the Acquisition), $0.2 million in care and maintenance expenses for the Guanajuato Mine, and a $0.2 million increase in income tax expense.  These factors were partly offset by a $0.5 million decrease in exploration, evaluation and development expenses ("EE&D") expenses.  It is noted that EE&D for the first quarter of 2019 included $1.6 million of expenditures related to Coricancha as the Company is not capitalizing any project or other costs related to Coricancha, other than stockpiled mineralized material, until a decision is made to restart production.  

The Company had operating cash flow before changes in non-cash net working capital of negative $3.5 million (negative $0.02 per share) in the first quarter of 2019, compared to $0.1 million ($0.00 per share) generated in the first quarter of 2018.  The decrease largely reflects a $2.6 million in business acquisition costs, a $1.1 million decrease in mine operating earnings before non-cash items, a $0.5 million increase in G&A cash expenses associated with the assumption of Beadell's Australian head office (which is to be wound down by Q3 2019), $0.2 million in care and maintenance costs, and a $0.3 million increase in other expenses.

Refer to the Company's MD&A for the three months ended March 31, 2019 for more details of the financial results. 

CHANGE IN COST REPORTING MEASURES

As a result of the Acquisition, the Company's primary metal production by value is now gold as even prior to the acquisition of Tucano, Great Panther's Mexican silver mines operations produced a significant component of gold by-product.  As a result, the Company has changed to primary reporting of cash cost and AISC cost metrics on a per ounce of gold sold basis, net of by-product credits (refer to the Non-GAAP Measures section in the Company's MD&A for definitions and reconciliations of these measures to the Company's reported financial results).  Cash cost and AISC measures on a payable silver ounce basis (net of by-product credits) continue to be provided for the Company's Mexican operating mines as these remain primary silver producing mines by value. 

CASH COST AND ALL-IN SUSTAINING COSTS

The consolidated cash cost and AISC for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 reflect the Tucano operations from the date of the completion of the Acquisition (March 5, 2019), and a comparison to those of prior periods is not meaningful.  Readers are asked to refer to the discussion of operating and cost metrics for the individual mines in the Company's MD&A for the three months ended March 31, 2019. 

Consolidated AISC per payable Au ounce was higher than guidance of $1,030 - $1,130 per Au oz (excluding corporate G&A) for the following reasons (Refer to Outlook section for discussion of 2019 production and cost guidance):

  • Tucano's results reflect a period of operation from March 5 to March 31, 2019 (from the date of the Acquisition) during which higher grade ore was stockpiled pending the completion of the oxygen plant which was completed as of the start of May, and secondarily, due to greater than planned mill maintenance requirements. Tucano was the source of most of the variance in Q1 AISC to our guidance and is expected to improve over the course of the year;
  • GMC's AISC per payable Ag oz was also higher than plan (and comparative periods which included production form the Guanajuato mine) as a result of variability in the mineral resource which impacted grades and resulted in the mining of narrower veins; and,
  • Adoption of the new accounting standard IFRS 16 – Leases.

 

Further discussion of these factors can be found in the Company's MD&A for the three months ended March 31, 2019.  For the purposes of consolidated cash cost and AISC per Au payable ounces, GMC and Topia are incorporated on the basis of Au production and sales, and other metals produced are treated as by-products.

CASH, SHORT-TERM DEPOSITS AND WORKING CAPITAL AT MARCH 31, 2019

At March 31, 2019, the Company had cash and short-term deposits of $41.4 million, compared to $50.6 million at December 31, 2018. 

Cash and short-term deposits decreased by $9.2 million in the first three months of 2019 primarily due to $8.9 million of cash used in operating activities mainly at Tucano, $4.1 million in additions to plant and equipment, $0.9 million in additional environmental bond for Coricancha, and $0.5 million in payments of lease liabilities.  These were partly offset by $2.7 million of partial repayment on the loan advanced to Beadell prior to the Acquisition, $1.4 million cash received upon the Acquisition, $0.5 million in proceeds from the exercise of stock options, and $0.4 million net cash proceeds from borrowings.

Net working capital was $0.5 million as at March 31, 2019, a decrease of $61.4 million from the start of the year.  The decrease was mainly due to the Tucano borrowings assumed in connection with the Acquisition of $55.4 million, negative $3.5 million in cash flows used in operating activities (before changes in non-cash working capital), $4.1 million additions to mineral property, plant and equipment, $0.9 million additional cash restricted for Coricancha environmental bond, and $0.3 million of lease liabilities recognized upon the adoption of IFRS 16 - Leases.  These factors were partly offset by the addition of other Tucano net working capital of $1.9 million, $0.5 million of stock option proceeds, and $0.4 million of net cash proceeds from borrowings. 

Subsequent to March 31, 2019, the Company completed the repurchase of Beadell convertible debentures in the amount of $10.5 million, made $4.3 million (A$6.0 million) in scheduled repayments to MACA Limited, and funded approximately $11.0 million in working capital for Tucano.

OUTLOOK 

Great Panther's focus for 2019 will be the integration and optimization of Tucano including identifying and implementing cost-saving and efficiency measures to improve profitability and reduce cash cost and AISC.  Tucano's production is expected to increase, and unit costs are expected to decrease with the recent commissioning of the supplemental oxygen and the coming dry season of lower strip and higher material movement. In addition, the Company is working on realizing cost synergies by rationalizing G&A costs of the Australian head office of the acquired company.  The wind-down of the head office of the acquired company and reduction of associated G&A expenditures is expected to be substantially completed by the third quarter of 2019.  The second quarter of 2019 will reflect a full quarter of some ongoing costs of the former head office of the acquired company, and some further restructuring costs that will reduce ongoing expenditures.

In addition, a key priority will be the advancement of an exploration program designed to develop near mine exploration targets at Tucano.  Tucano's operating team in Brazil remains in place and there has been strong integration with Great Panther's head office through regularly scheduled meetings, regular communication, site visits and sharing of information and data.  Great Panther is also working to develop a program aimed at capitalizing on Tucano's significant longer-term exploration potential.

Great Panther will continue to evaluate its head office resources and needed skills and competencies to facilitate the integration of Tucano and ongoing oversight and management of all of Great Panther's operations and projects.  In this regard, in the first quarter of 2019, the Company added a senior technical and manager level finance positions, both of which were filled by Brazilian-Canadians who have professional qualifications and experience in the mining sector in Brazil.  The Company will also continue to assess its needs at the executive level. 

As previously announced, the Company took steps in the second half of 2018 to realign operations at GMC to reduce costs and maximize mine operating-cash flow, with a reduction in production.  At the start of 2019, the Company commenced a multi-mine optimization strategy under which all of the production for GMC during 2019 is being sourced from the San Ignacio Mine, enabling a focused exploration program for the Guanajuato Mine aimed at identifying higher margin mineral resources.  While the overall improvement in cost structure at the GMC was achieved, variability in the resource resulted in lower grades, lower recoveries and higher waste to ore ratios, which translated into lower than planned production and higher than planned unit costs.  Grades and recoveries have improved since late in the first quarter and the Company's operations and geology teams are focused on optimizing San Ignacio. 

A project to increase Topia mining and processing capacity by 25% commenced in the first quarter of 2019 with design specifications and equipment purchases and is scheduled to be completed late in the third quarter or early in the fourth quarter.

On January 29, 2019 prior to the Acquisition, Beadell issued 2019 production guidance of 145,000 to 155,000 gold ounces at an all-in sustaining cost of $1,000 to $1,100 per ounce.  Great Panther issued 2019 guidance of 3,700,000 – 4,000,000 silver equivalent ounces on January 17, 2019 at an AISC (excluding head office corporate G&A) of $10.00 - $12.00 per silver payable ounce for its Mexican operations. 

The Company has reviewed the Tucano guidance provided by the former Beadell management and is adjusting the AISC (excluding corporate G&A) guidance for Tucano to $1,100 to $1,200 per payable ounce to account for certain in-country G&A and sustaining capital expenditures that were not included in the previous estimate of AISC.  In addition, the late commissioning of supplemental oxygen supply adversely affected Tucano AISC for March. The full year 2019 production guidance remains unchanged. 

The following updated guidance reflects the integration of the Tucano guidance effective from the March 5, 2019 acquisition date and the above noted adjustments to AISC (excluding corporate G&A) expenditures.

Tucano's production profile is significantly weighted to the second half of the year due to the dry season which enables higher rates of mining productivity and lower strip ratios in the open pits.  The quarterly production profile of the fiscal year guidance is expected to be as follows:

It is cautioned that cash cost and AISC are very sensitive to the MXN and BRL foreign exchange rates, and metal prices through the computation of by-product credits.  To manage the Company's exposure to changes in the BRL and MXN exchange rates, the Company may enter into forward contracts to purchase foreign currencies in exchange for USD at various rates and maturity dates.  Subsequent to the first quarter the Company entered into notional BRL forward contracts for the purchase of $60 million over a period of the following six months at an average exchange rate of 3.99 BRL per USD.

$ 83 – $   97

 

In Peru, the Company will also continue to advance the development of the Coricancha Mine with the objective of setting a platform for production growth by 2020.  While still in the evaluation stage, based upon historic production records, Coricancha has the potential to add three million Ag eq oz of annual production.

The Bulk Sample Program ("BSP") at Coricancha continues to advance.  The mining phase of the BSP has been completed and processing of the mined material has commenced and is expected to be completed in June.  Due to the issues encountered with the existing main ore pass, the final results of the BSP were delayed as the Company was required to adopt an alternate plan of trucking the BSP mined material. Once the BSP mineralized material has been processed and concentrates analyzed, the Company expects to be in a position to make a restart decision in late June 2019.  If a decision is made to restart the mine, the Company will assess capital resources at that time.  The Company's intention is to prioritize the aforementioned investments in Tucano exploration, the exploration program at Guanajuato, and the Topia plant expansion and it is more likely that the project to restart Coricancha will be initiated in early 2020 if a positive decision is made.

WEBCAST AND CONFERENCE CALL TO DISCUSS THE FIRST QUARTER 2019 FINANCIAL RESULTS

The Company has scheduled the release of its first quarter 2019 financial results for Wednesday, May 15, 2019 after market close.  A conference call and webcast will be held on May 16, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (8:00 a.m. Pacific Time) to discuss the results and provide a corporate update.  Mr. James Bannantine, President and CEO and Mr. Jim Zadra, CFO and Corporate Secretary will host the call.
